BERLINALE SELECTION 2019 – Atlas (The Mover)
November 24, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm EET
A new film series by the Goethe-Institut Cyprus
With the “Berlinale Selection 2019” taking place from 5th to 30th November, the Goethe-Institut Cyprus is launching a new film series presenting a selection of the best German language films from the most prestigious German film festival – the Berlinale. The film series gives the opportunity to audiences in Cyprus to get to know the best works in German contemporary cinema, with a focus on current winners of this German film award.
The programme includes new works of well-known filmmakers such as Caroline Link (Oscar winner) and Andreas Dresen, as well as exciting film debuts by David Nawrath and Nora Fingscheidt, who won a Silver Bear with her debut film “System crasher”.
In line with the festival motto of 2019 “the private is political“, the Goethe-Institut Cyprus is showing five films, which show in a suspenseful, dramatic or tragicomical way how people come to terms with their personal destiny and how much political and private influence one another. Questions, that are not limited to the German everyday life.
The theatre star Rainer Bock, who among others played in “The white ribbon” by Michael Haneke and “Inglourious Basterds” by Quentin Tarantino and who appeared in the British TV series “SS-GB”, plays the leading role in Nawrath’s dense film debut “Atlas” (The Mover). DIE WELT AM SONNTAG writes: “Bock is someone who can make the invisible visible. Bock is someone who – through a sharp glance, a turning of the head, menacing furrows – transforms in minutes a minimum of text into living people, playing out the physical states of their psyches”.
